I've been around these parts for quite a while, but I don't post very often. My real life gets in the way. But I certainly do love TR. Gives me a chance evangelize Vinnie on occasion, who IMHO, gets way to little love.

If I can go off topic for a bit, Vinnie was never going to get any real shot. He had really big shoes to fill. Brent had finally, after 11 years, come into his own, and Vince really was completely different. He was not anything like Brent. Vince was a synth player with awesome chops. He was hired because he could sing high harmonies. The story was that he was hired almost on a whim. But I digress. I believe that he was great, but couldn't fill the bill because of circumstances. Fans or bandmates wouldn't give him the shot. Not least of which because of his indoctrination with Bruce H.

Anyway, I'd like to point out a reference to TR Fans...

Some great and legal boots on this site... He even has the decency to post in FLAC
